Moose Blood Announced For Soundwave 2016

Written by Tom Williams on September 29, 2015

UPDATE 17/12/15 5.50pm: Soundwave 2016 has been officially cancelled.

Now in its seventh week, the Soundwave drip feed has revealed English rockers Moose Blood are the ninth act to be officially confirmed for the festival’s 2016 lineup.

Moose Blood’s Soundwave 2016 jaunt will see the band play their first-ever Aussie shows, backed by a handful of EPs, their 2014 debut album I’ll Keep You In Mind From Time To Time and their experiences touring as part of the 2015 Vans Warped Tour.

Taking to Twitter today, Soundwave promoter AJ Maddah prefaced the announcement of Moose Blood’s spot on the Soundwave 2016 lineup by saying the young band are from Kent, are “definitely going places” and that he “would be very impressed if any of you have heard of this band”.

Moose Blood join the eight previously announced Soundwave 2016 acts: heavy as hell supergroup Devil You Know, British metalcore heroes Bring Me The Horizon, Finnish metal outfit Lordi, local lads Northlane, Swedish hardcore act Refused, LA alt-rockers Failure, Brisbane rockers Dead Letter Circus and Welsh metal outfit Bullet For My Valentine.

AJ Maddah today confirmed that Soundwave has locked in a date for its first full lineup announcement (which is expected to include 22 acts), but he did not announce the exact date.

Maddah said earlier this week that Soundwave would only make its first full lineup announcement after he had confirmed the plans of two potential Soundwave 2016 acts — one of which he has actually revealed.

Maddah has also assured fans that Soundwave will go ahead in 2016, despite news breaking that the festival’s former operating company is going into voluntary administration over unpaid debts.
